My apologies for neglecting this space. I didn’t mean to. It’s just that I’ve been swallowed up by school. School started six weeks ago, and tomorrow marks the end of the fourth week of middle school. Between student teaching, classes, and homework, I’ve had little time for anything else. I find myself scrambling to finish my reading and homework every night, or pushing myself to get ahead so that J and I can actually enjoy our weekends together. J has been really great about picking up my slack around the house (well, he pretty much does everything now) while I work on my assignments on the living room floor. All in all, being a student again is not as bad as I had envisioned it. I’m learning a lot, and I’m having fun doing it.
I also have an incredible demonstration teacher showing me the ropes. She is seriously amazing, and the 8th graders absolutely love her. I have so much to learn from her.
And I didn’t think it possible, but I find middle school students crazy adorable.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
